When: July 5, 2018, 8 PM
Gary and I have been going (and going, and going) in the parks since 8 AM, and we’re beat. The heat’s been brutal, the crowds relentless. We’ve had a good day, but we’re sunburned and a little over-jostled.
Time for a little dinner, away from the crush of the parks.
We hit the Carthay Circle Restaurant.
I take a few minutes with the menu, trying to figure out what sounds right. Fish seems too light. I’m not up for pasta. The lamb and chicken both seem OK, but they’re not grabbing me.
I finally go with the New York steak, medium rare.
The dish arrives, and it’s gorgeous. One large piece of perfectly-cooked meat, sitting on a bit of sauce and accompanied by garbanzo beans. I pick up my steak knife, cut out the first bite, and pop it in my mouth.
Steakhouse 55 gets a lot of the steak praise in the parks, and with good reason: it’s what they do. But this is as good as anything I’ve had at Steakhouse 55. It’s wonderfully seasoned, cooked exactly right, and is bite after bite after bite of happiness.
And after a long day? Even more heavenly.
This is an easy recommend. If you’re at all a steak fan, you won’t be disappointed.
